Which faction do you like more? That's a big decision when making a new character and take your time, no rush. 
Do you care for aestethics? After all, you will stare at that toon from now on. 
Do you do PVE or PVP? Some races have racials that suit PVE more whilst others have racials that suit PVP more.

> Worgen
Comes with Darkflight that increases your movement speed by 40% for 10 sec (does share a CD with our Dash), a passive 1% to crit, a passive shadow and nature resistance that scales with level, increased Skinning by 15 (and speed of skinning) and Running Wild that serves as the Worgen "mount".

Opener: 
Faerie Fire - Feral Charge - Mangle - Shred - Ravage - Tiger's Fury - Rake - Rip - Berserk
Priority: 1. Mangle target for 30% bleed dmg incrase.
2. Rip & Rake should be active 100% of fight time. 3. Shred - Main damage spell. 
4. Use Savage roar 1-2 combo points (if you have all active)
5. Use your brain, whole rotation sometimes must be changed.
A simplified approach to a cat feral rotation: Apply (and refresh as needed) Mangle (may be omitted if another person applies a similar effect, e.g. feral druid tank). Apply (and refresh as needed) Rake. Do you have 5 combo points on the target? Yes -> Apply (or refresh as needed) Rip. Yes AND Rip is already ticking on the target -> Use (or refresh as appropriate) Savage Roar. Yes AND Rip is already ticking on the target AND target is below 25% health -> Use Ferocious Bite. No -> Shred for combo points. Use Tiger's Fury whenever you're dropping below 50 rage and Berserk on cooldown.

Weapon
  1. Malevolence, H Halfus. (300.44)
    ——————————
  2. Akirus the Worm-Breaker, H Magmaw. (281.01)
  3. Vicious Gladiator’s Pike/Staff (rank 2), PvP. (279.73)
    ——————————
  4. Malevolence, Halfus. (266.19)
    ——————————
  5. Akirus the Worm-Breaker, Magmaw. (248.97)
  6. Vicious Gladiator’s Pike/Staff (rank 1), PvP. (247.81)
    ——————————
  7. Elementium Poleaxe, Blacksmithing BoE. (235.80)
  8. Seliza’s Spear, H LC. (235.00)
  9. Mobus’s Vile Halberd, Vash’jir World Boss. (234.92)
  10. Darkling Staff, H Stonecore. (234.49)
  11. Spear of Trailing Shadows, Baradin/Hellscream Revered. (230.16)

Happily, a perfectly itemized BiS weapon drops from the first boss in Bastion, and a solid alternative drops from the first boss in Blackwing Descent. Magmaw is very puggable, and Halfus is close to it. (Note that Akirus is a strength weapon, so while it’s an upgrade from a 346 blue, it’s a much better upgrade for strength-based classes. Don’t be greedy.)

Head

  1. Stormrider’s Headpiece, H Nefarian. (106.12)
  2. Membrane of C’Thun, H Cho’gall. (102.20)
    ——————————
  3. Tsanga’s Helm, Bastion of Twilight BoE. (99.27)
  4. Agile Bio-Optic Killshades, Engineering-only BoP. (~97)
  5. Stormrider’s Headpiece, Nefarian. (94.03)
  6. Membrane of C’Thun, Cho’gall. (90.20)
    ——————————
  7. Mask of Vines, 2200 JP. (83.57)
  8. Helm of Numberless Shadows, H Stonecore. (83.02)

Tsanga’s Helm is a very nice BoE that drops in Bastion of Twilight. Grab it if you can. If not, the tier helm is okay. C’thun is less than desirable since its socket bonus is haste, not agility, but it’s better than a blue.

Legs

  1. Stormrider’s Legguards, H Maloriak. (117.92)
  2. Wind Stalker Leggings, H Al’Akir. (random)
  3. Aberration’s Leggings, H Maloriak. (112.54)
    ——————————
  4. Stormrider’s Legguards, Argaloth/2200 VP. (105.11)
  5. Wind Stalker Leggings, Al’Akir. (random)
  6. Aberration’s Leggings, Maloriak. (100.35)
  7. ——————————
  8. Leggings of the Burrowing Mole, 2200 JP. (93.78)
  9. Beauty’s Chew Toy, H Blackrock Caverns. (88.33)

Do you feel lucky, punk? (And by punk, I mean all you new troll druids. Get a haircut.)  The tier piece is BiS here, and is the best value/pt for your VP; of course, if you buy it and it drops off Argaloth next week, you’ll be ever-so-slightly annoyed. :). Wind Stalker’s can be pretty good if you get the right random enchants (plus it’s the only legs piece with a red socket), but I’ll still prefer tier here.

Chest

  1. Sark of the Unwatched, H Atramedes. (117.73)
  2. Stormrider’s Raiment, H Halfus. (112.11)
    ——————————
  3. Morrie’s Waywalker Wrap, World Drop. (104.93)
  4. Sark of the Unwatched, Atramedes. (104.93)
  5. Stormrider’s Raiment, 2200 VP. (100.12)
    ——————————
  6. Assassin’s Chestplate, Leatherworking BoE. (91.08)
  7. Defias Brotherhood Vest, H Deadmines. (89.69)
  8. Vest of Misshapen Hides, H Grim Batol. (89.31)
  9. Hieroglyphic Vest, H Halls of Origination. (88.37)
  10. Tunic of Sinking Envy, 2200 JP. (87.02)

The tier piece is pretty poor here, so most people will end up picking it up anyway as they find things to use VP on. Morrie’s and/or Sark are much better pieces, though they’d be perfect if they had a +agi socket bonus. If you can’t get a Tsanga’s, this would be my 2nd choice for your offset + tier.

See my trinket post for analysis + comments. Basically, you want H Tia’s and one of  Unsolvable Riddle, H Eye, or H Key to start raiding, and look to upgrade  your offset trinket to Fluid Death or one of the epic proc trinkets.  Don’t use strength trinkets unless you have no other option. (Yes, these  need links, I’ll get to it eventually.) There are several trinket  changes coming in the patch, which I’ll be analyzing in the future.

Hands

  1. Double Attack Handguards, H Chimaeron. (86.00)
  2. Stormrider’s Grips, H Magmaw. (81.69)
    ——————————
  3. Double Attack Handguards, Chimaeron. (76.50)
  4. Liar’s Handwraps/Stormbolt Gloves, Dragonmaw/Wildhammer Exalted. (73.03)
  5. Stormrider’s Grips, 1650 VP. (72.66)
    ——————————
  6. Gloves of Haze, H Vortex Pinnacle. (68.07)
  7. Sticky Fingers, 1650 JP. (68.01)

None of the options here are well-optimized for ferals. The DA Handguards are best, but only slightly, so just stick with Tier (which you should use only when you can get the set bonus, since it’s inferior to the rep piece).

Shoulders

  1. Poison Protocol Pauldrons, H Omnitron Council. (87.11)
  2. Stormrider’s Spaulders, H Cho’gall. (82.21)
    ——————————
  3. Poison Protocol Pauldrons, Omnitron Council. (77.46)
  4. Stormrider’s Spaulders, Cho’gall. (73.03)
    ——————————
  5. Thieving Spaulders, H Shadowfang Keep. (65.21)
  6. Caridean Epaulettes, H Throne of the Tides. (64.90)
  7. Embrace of the Night, 1650 JP. (64.86)

The PPPs are a very good feral cat piece, but you’ll eventually want the Shoulders to round out Tier. 3rd offset choice if you can’t get an offset helm or chest.

Waist

  1. Dispersing Belt, H Twilight Council. (82.21)
  2. Wind Stalker Belt, H Council of Wind. (random)
    ——————————
  3. Dispersing Belt, Twilight Council. (73.03)
  4. Wind Stalker Belt, Council of Wind. (random)
  5. Belt of Nefarious Whispers, Leatherworking BoE. (71.69)
    ——————————
  6. Sash of Musing, 1650 JP. (68.39)
  7. Red Beam Cord, H Halls of Origination. (65.21)
  8. Quicksand Belt, Ramkahen Revered. (64.73)
  9. Belt of a Thousand Mouths, Akma’hat(Rare Uldum mob). (62.52)

The LW belt will come up a bit in value with the new gem socket, especially if it’s red (though that’s doubtful). Windstalker w/Mastery is your best option, though all are fairly close.

Feet

  1. Storm Rider’s Boots, H Halfus. (85.75)
    ——————————
  2. Storm Rider’s Boots, Halfus. (76.17)
  3. Treads of Fleeting Joy, 1650 VP. (73.03)
    ——————————
  4. Crafty’s Gaiters, H Lost City. (68.01)
  5. VanCleef’s Boots, H Deadmines. (67.58)
  6. Boots of the Predator, H Shadowfang Keep. (65.59)

Hey, thanks Blizzard! Let’s call an offset piece the same name as the set piece to confuse everyone! /sigh. They’re from Halfus, so shouldn’t be difficult to acquire. The VP boots are not great.

Neck

  1. Necklace of Strife, H Valiona. (62.31)
    ——————————
  2. Necklace of Strife, Valiona. (55.15)
  3. Don Rodrigo’s Fabulous Necklace, World Drop. (54.77, underbudget)
    ——————————
  4. Brazen Elementium Medallion, Jewelcrafting BoE. (50.03)
  5. Pendant of the Lightless Grotto, H Stonecore. (49.09)
  6. Acorn of the Daughter Tree, Guardians of Hyjal Revered. (48.75)
  7. Entwined Elementium Choker, Jewelcrafting BoE. (48.64)
  8. Amulet of Dull Dreaming, 1250 JP. (46.69)

Well, this is easy. At least the Strife necklace is well-itemized.

Rings

  1. Lightning Conductor Band, H Omnitron. (59.24)
  2. Mistral Circle, H Council of Wind. (random)
    ——————————
  3. Signet of the Elder Council, Earthen Ring Exalted. (55.15)
  4. Mistral Circle, Council of Wind. (random)
  5. Lightning Conductor Band, Omnitron. (52.43)
  6. Ring of Rivalry (STR), H Valiona. (52.39)
  7. Elementium Destroyer’s Ring, Jewelcrafting BoE. (52.34)
  8. Gilnean Ring of Ruination, World Drop. (51.62)
    ——————————
  9. Skullcracker Ring, H Blackrock Caverns. (49.09)
  10. Ring of Blinding Stars, H Halls of Origination. (48.72)
  11. Terrath’s Signet of Balance, Therazane Revered. (48.36)
  12. Band of Blades, Jewelcrafting BoE. (47.70)
  13. Nautilus Ring, H ToT. (46.69)
  14. Mirage Ring, H Lost City. (46.39) (may not exist)
  15. Ring of Dun Algaz, H Grim Batol. (46.04)

Rep ring + Mistral(w/Mastery) is best. The Elementium ring is so well itemized that is climbs up a tier, but good luck finding someone who can make it.

Back

  1. Cloak of Biting Chill, H Maloriak. (62.77)
    ——————————
  2. Cloak of Biting Chill, Maloriak. (55.56)
  3. Dory’s Finery, World Drop. (52.43)
  4. Viewless Wings, 1250 VP. (52.43)
    ——————————
  5. Cloak of Thredd, H Deadmines. (49.09)
  6. Kaleki Cloak, H Lost City. (48.14)
  7. Razor-Edged Cloak, Leatherworking BoE. (48.13)
  8. Twitching Shadows, H Blackrock Caverns. (46.69)
  9. Cape of the Brotherhood, H Deadmines. (45.96)
  10. Sotftwind Cape, Earthen Ring Revered. (45.96)

Hold out for the cloak from Maloriak if you can, though there’s not a ton of items to buy with VP.

Wrists

  1. Parasitic Bands, H Magmaw. (62.77)
    ——————————
  2. Parasitic Bands, Magmaw. (55.56)
    ——————————
  3. Double Dealing Bracers, H Shadowfang Keep. (49.09)
  4. Poison Fang Bracers. H Halls of Origination. (46.96)

Step 1. Get Parasitic Bands. Step 2. ??? Step 3. Pro..zzzzzzz.

Idol Relic

  1. Relic of Golganneth, 700 VP. (37.09)
    ——————————
  2. Relic of Arathor, H Shadowfang Keep. (34.23)
  3. Silver Inlaid Leaf, Inscription BoE. (34.18)
  4. Sandshift Relic, H Blackrock Caverns. (34.02)

Thats it :P Wish you GooD DPS !
